Fund your education.

Our program offers several awards and scholarships that recognize our students’ achievements and supports their research and activities. Take a look at what’s available.

Paul Jean Provost (1945–2003) came to IPFW in 1974 as the sole anthropologist and was one of the founding members of the Program in Anthropology. A cherished friend and colleague, Paul was an unforgettable individual, who worked tirelessly to make anthropology a visible and important part of campus life. According to this family’s wishes, the Paul Jean Provost Scholarship was established in 2004 to award scholarships to outstanding anthropology students with financial need.

One or more $5,000 scholarships are awarded each year.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be an anthropology major 
  • Have completed at least 12 credit hours of Anthropology courses by the time of application

The content of the essay and how you define “importance” is completely up to you. You will also be asked to provide a list of extracurricular activities in which you've been involved during your time at PFW.
